"Approved" Plot Synopsis Not Showing - Godzilla: King of the Monsters

On the 31st of May, I wrote a full plot synopsis for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. After waiting several days for it to be reviewed, I found out today that my submission had finally been approved. However, upon going to the film's page, my synopsis was nowhere to be seen. 

As I had spent a while writing the synopsis and ensuring I got all the details correct, I am slightly upset to see that all my effort was ultimately for nothing, with no indication from IMDb that it was deleted or edited or whatever. 

I would like to see that my submission is shown on the film's page, or at the very least get an answer as to why it isn't.

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/plots/G56STCKTK7ESG7CP#synopses:
A maximum of one synopsis is allowed per title. Please modify the existing item rather than delete the live one and/or add a new one.
The aforementioned provision may be a contributing factor to this mystery and mysteries like it, on IMDb.

Only one synopsis allowed? Well, that kind of stinks. The one currently on the film's page contains inaccuracies regarding chronology of the film's events.

Considering my own synopsis was "approved", reportedly, seeing it up on the site would at least let me know it was actually approved.

From a contributor's point of view, it was easier to work with the swiki system that used to be in place. We could see the edit history and there was no concept of adding a synopsis.

Hi Danny K 2001 -

I reviewed your Plot Synopsis addition, and noted that you incorrectly received the approved status.  Your submission was actually rejected because we already had an existing synopsis for this title, as Jeorj mentioned above, we only allow one synopsis per title. 

If there are inaccuracies in the existing synopsis we have for "Godzilla: King of the Monsters", please submit the applicable corrections/updates to the existing review and our editors will take a look.
